Racecar Rhapsody soild, headed to Russia


Racecar Rhapsody has been sold to Russian interests for an undisclosed price and was scheduled to be flown Saturday from Saratoga to Moscow to run in the Aug. 16 Russian Derby, according to the colt's former trainer, Ken McPeek.

Racecar Rhapsody, a 3-year-old colt by Tale of the Cat, was sold by a partnership headed by Jerry Carroll. He has won once in seven starts, with each of his last four starts resulting in fourth-place finishes in graded stakes, most recently the May 17 Preakness won by Big Brown.
